Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass.
Appearance: Reddish brown, more brown than red. No aeration, but 3 fingers of head.
Aroma: Malt, bread, sour fruit, molasses.
Taste: Malt, some hops, but bitter hops. No complexity or subtlety -- in your face hops.
Mouthfeel: Some lingering bitterness, but not in bad way.

Poured into pint glass.

A - poured a reddish amber with a nice, frothy, slightly off white two finger head.

S - Pine, and a tad bit of tangerine and tropical fruit..not much at all. getting bread like sweet malt as well behind the hops.

T - well, this is definitely piney, especially in that after taste. getting a lot of malt.. pretty juicy tho. up front i barely get any hops im almost getting like a tea flavor. herbal in a way.

M - not too much carb, very drinkable tho. insanely creamy.

overall this beer was average to me.i was expecting something like sculpin ipa....pure west coast citra style... too much malt for a west coast style IPA in my opinion. i was expecting huge citrus flavor. the description on the bottle didn't match the taste or smell at all. If they didnt emphasize the west coast style on this beer i may have enjoyed it more...i went in with a citra hop bomb mindset.
